Bhuvneshwar on course for super series

Jul 25, 2014: Only 15 times in Test history has a player achieved the double of 300 runs and 20 wickets in a Test series. Going on current form, Bhuvneshwar could well be the 16th

For goodness sake, pitch it up

Steven Lynch

England v India, 1st Investec Test, Trent Bridge, 5th day

Signs a corner has been turned by England

Jul 13, 2014: The hosts appeared to play with a different attitude at Trent Bridge. No longer was there a sense that the game owed them. They just got on with it and Alastair Cook played the match with a smile on his face

Mark Nicholas at Trent Bridge

Dhoni wins the first round in the captaincy battle

Jul 13, 2014: India's and England's captains have both taken some inexplicable decisions in the first Test at Trent Bridge. But Dhoni managed to take advantage of the hosts' frail line-up
